Someone needs to take away his copy of "What's the Matter with Kansas?"

Cling to guns? Really?

At issue are comments Obama made privately at a fundraising gathering in San Francisco last Sunday. He explained his troubles winning over working class voters, saying they have become frustrated with economic conditions:

"It's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

The comments, posted on the Huffington Post political Web site Friday, set off a storm of criticism from Clinton, Republican nominee-in-waiting John McCain and a number of other GOP officials. (link)

So much for narrowing Clinton's lead in Pennsylvania.

Unfortunately Obama didn't make his point about this the way he did this back in 2004.

God Bless you-

Please post my thoughts to all Pennsylvanians.

I watched NAFTA destroy our lives and our dreams.

I watched foreign interests take over our mortgages.

I watched Clinton give China most favored nation status and then poison our children with toys filled with lead.

Alex- My grandfather fought to unionize our steel mills in pennsylvania. I remember his story of how the state police fired a tear gas canister into the picket line killing the man next to him. This occurred in Beaver Falls, PA at a steel mill known as Moltrup Steel. The building is still there to this day.

After watching Clintons destroy the dreams than to hide behind she would change NAFTA, her chief strategist Pennn was demoted and not fired. Notice he was demoted. If she wins NAFTA will be extended to Columbia and all those union workers who support her will come to know the heartache my grandfather and his children dreams destroyed by asnother Clinton.
